Super Princess Peach remake for the 3DS?!

I went to Gamestop, doing a little Christmas shopping (and honestly just getting my groove on to this music they were playing at Gamestop) and I was looking at the out of cartridge DS games, and guess what was there.

...Super Princess Peach.

I was like, sweet, I've been subscribing to Nintendo Power since 2009, and yet I never even knew this game existed. I was gonna buy it until I looked at the price tag: 44.09 DOLLARS. WTF?!

I was like that has to be a mistake but I didn't feel like asking an employee, so I drove about 20 miles to the other Gamestop, and it was the SAME PRICE. I was fed up and asked the guy behind the counter why a used DS game cost so much, and he said that there's a lot of demand for it plus they're remaking it on the 3DS. Turns out the game came out with the release of the original DS and now they're remaking it for the 3DS. Why is it so exspensive though?

The game was neither a launch title for the DS, nor is it being remade or ported to the 3DS.

It does appear to be overpriced, however. It was 20 pre-owned at my local GAME when I went this morning. I'd go with the fact that it's a Mario game - games like Mario Kart DS and Super Mario 64 DS still have high prices too.

uh... Pretty sure he lied to you about them remaking it..

And it is expensive because of limited copies and not necessarily because everyone wants it.

I've seen it at Toys R Us selling new for $35 (IIRC). Seen it the last couple of times I went. (earlier this month)
Too bad. Waluigi time!

Well he said that 44 dollars was actually a good price and that other places like Walmart and Target were selling it for 80 dollars or more.

If it was being remade for 3DS it would drop in price like Devil Survivor did, not raise in price. Gamestop is so stupid.

SPP seriously needs a 3DS sequel. Not a remake, a sequel.

Probably ain't happening.
shoot the core.
